“Solei loved shopping and becoming Princess”
Over the course of several months, Wish Kid Solei started developing various concerning symptoms. First, she started to bruise easily, and then her fingers and feet started hurting. After visiting a specialist, Solei was diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disorder that affects many parts of the body including joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain.
Shortly after her diagnosis, Solei developed a common cold but ended up in the ICU after her symptoms became life-threatening. Every time Solei coughed, a small tear would develop in her lungs, one that, because of her lupus, couldn’t fix itself. Solei was released from the ICU after a week, but returned after only a few days in worse condition. Doctors had no choice but to put Solei in a medically-induced coma. She was completely unconscious for over 17 days, living on life support in an attempt to heal her lungs.
Thankfully, the treatment worked, and Solei recovered from that dangerous situation. She still deals with lupus on a daily basis, as there is no cure for the autoimmune disorder, but she manages to maintain a positive outlook.
This little girl really loves to shop for anything sparkly, cheetah-print and pink, so KWN couldn’t wait to give her an ultimate experience at a local mall. In coordination with Rogue Valley Mall and many of the stores, Solei was crowned Princess of Rogue Valley Mall for the day where she was treated like royalty at every store and even had her own paparazzi.
